The counter-culture's main problem was a complete inability to regulate themselves, to achieve consensus on issues and make decisions laid out in the cult-movie, Easy Rider: of the film's three main characters, the one who 'turns hippie' is the first one killed - beaten to death by a bunch of rednecks - for 'being with hippies'; the other two main characters are more brutally killed in the end, driving home the point - "to have any degree of social or political order," don't be a hippie or we'll kill you and crush you.

The same thing happened, and was spoken, to the Occupy Wall Street movement. I was, and still am in, both 'movements'. I've been deleted a million times!

Seriously? Their problem was they were all beaten to death?

Seriously, I just said, "don't be a hippie or we'll kill you and crush you." You just deleted my 'crush' inference.

"Don't be a hippie or we'll kill you and 'and / or' crush you."
